For the second year in a row I go to this series of nightly concerts. Wonderful concerts. Awake. Despite a late start, there are even families with children in the hall.
Concert performance of operas in the Philharmonic today is more profitable and interesting, because you are guaranteed from the director's perversions and mediocre decisions that contradict the music itself. Enjoying singing and watching the action, having previously studied the plot, gives great pleasure. The performance of "Faust", one of the most repertoire operas of the world theater was just such a pleasure. The composition of the performers was matched perfectly. The opera was sold out.
It was a magical evening :-) enchanting music and clean voices! singers, conductor, orchestra, choir - they all gave themselves up to music, enjoyed it and gave it their best. This musical composition was able to captivate the viewer, and the auditorium breathed in at the beginning of the performance and exhaled only on the last note. For me, these three and a half hours passed absolutely unnoticed, I so immersed myself in the opera, that all my accumulated fatigue for the day as a hand took off, and at midnight I could not sleep - so my heart was music! I look forward to the next concert of this season ticket.
This year the ensemble of folk dance them. Moiseyev was 80 years old. During this time, so many wonderful words were said in their address that it is difficult to add something new. Colorful, musical, perfect and synchronous movements, a large and diverse repertoire. In October I was at a concert dedicated to the 80th anniversary of the ensemble. Yesterday, none of the numbers did not happen again. In the first department there was a Russian dance, skomorokhov dance, Spanish, Latin American, tango, miniature The machine room, which is a repair of equipment on the ship. It seems that every artist is a cog in a huge machine that after repair works clearly. The second department is the modern ballet Night on the Bald Mountain, where the young people of the country are having fun first, and at midnight the witches and devils gather for their sabbath. Beautiful choreography, wonderful costumes. Spectators for a long time did not release artists who performed an encore dance. The Philharmonia Hall-2 (in the Olympic Village) was almost full. I would like to note that after the renovation the hall became more spacious, comfortable, with good acoustics, everywhere it is seen well except for a few places in the 2 and 5 lodges, because the projection of the stage is hampered by the ledge of the lodges in front of them, with the orchestra in the 6th bed. Therefore, I do not recommend buying tickets for seats 1.2.3 in lodges 2 and 5, if there is such an opportunity. Knowing this, I chose the places from which it was clearly visible and audible, having received great pleasure from the concert. The concert lasted 2 hours with an intermission. Still I would like to add that the buses of the Philharmonic Society 1 hour 15 minutes before the start of the performance are met by spectators near the South-West metro station (buses leave every 15 minutes from the exit from the last car from the center, in the passage turn left, then right to the stairs), along the end of the performance of all spectators in the same way taken to the subway. It is very convenient. Thank you for taking care of the audience.
Were on the day of the jubilee, 10-02-2018. Perfect art! A clean spring, not a couple of the present, "like ballet", which is shamefully set in the former Bolshoi Theater. artists are rare professionals. I am glad that there are many children in the hall - our people have a chance to escape from the oppression of vulgarity, imposed from outside.
Were at a concert yesterday. Terrific, as always! Night on the bald mountain performed by the ensemble - for me completely new, at first it even became terrible from the dances of witches and devils. But when my husband said that "this is acrobatic rock'n'roll))", it was generally fun to watch)). Definitely, I recomend !!
Always the highest level of performance. Thank you, that the talent and skill of the creator of the ensemble lives with us. Thanks to the Ensemble for all the feelings that you experience at concerts. Take the children's ensemble to the concerts. This will best educate them in love for the beautiful, love of art and love for the Motherland. Thank you!
Concert of the ensemble. Igor Moiseyev really liked us with my husband. Everything was on top - artists of the ensemble, costumes, orchestra, choreography. Everything is very qualitative, from the dances and beauty of the ensemble artists is breathtaking. If there is an opportunity, we will definitely go again. But, unfortunately, there were minuses, which to respected artists are not relevant. We sat in the 8th row of the stalls, closer to the edge of the row. Next to us were small children (up to 7 years) with parents and at the end of the 7th row a group of girls with one accompanying mother. It was a natural disaster, which we did not expect at all. Little children talked loudly with their parents throughout the whole concert, jumped on chairs, climbed on the backs of seats, tk. they could hardly see from their seats. Parents also answered them loudly. There was a constant buzz from their conversations and a noise from jumping on chairs. From the aisle next to the side chairs periodically appeared the attendant of the hall, she did not make any comments to the children. I often travel and go to concerts outside of Russia. To my great regret and shame, I have to admit that I have never seen such disgusting behavior of adults and children in concerts and theaters anywhere. It seems that only in Russia at concerts during a performance (even in opera), people sitting in the room allow themselves to talk to each other in full voice. I'm not talking about children anymore. I understand that the administration of the concert hall with a general drop in the level of public behavior at concerts can not do anything, but is there the same possibility to control the entry of young children into the hall for evening performances? And if children of any age are allowed, then think about the children's places? You can announce before the concert about the rules of behavior of children during the concert, remind adults of this, of course. And in cases where parents can not or do not want to control their child during the evening concert, ask them to leave the hall with their uncontrollable offspring? For myself, I concluded that the next concert did not take tickets to the side seats in the first rows of the stalls. It is better to sit higher. Less chance to be among unmanageable children and spoil your evening.
I go constantly to this team, I know its programs. Excellent program, I advise everyone, do not regret it and even for family viewing is interesting. But with the departure of Moiseyev, the quality in the performance of young people has gone a little, especially in solo rooms.
Were at a concert on January 20 in the Tchaikovsky Hall. The hall is beautiful, you can safely take tickets absolutely to any places! As for the performance of the Ansaible, it was professional, spectacular, beautiful costumes, but ....... was at their concert in childhood, around 1978. Then there was the impression of a miracle seen! Over the years, they seem to have created nothing new. Has not hooked. Who goes to theaters and concerts is rare - go boldly, do not be disappointed. But if you are a skeptical spectator and you have something to compare, then go to the "todes" of the wind instrumental! There is a drive, a hymn of youth, strength and beauty. I put the scrap - well. But I'm disappointed.
Were at the concert on December 18. Full hall, full spectators room, although it was Monday. Great! We received great pleasure and energy for the future! Thank you guys for the pleasure. Thanks to Bigbilet for the reminder and the organization of the visit!
